The things that truly interest me now are almost mind-boggling when I look at where I was mentally just a few years ago. Not to say that I am a completely different person (because I still replace dinner with cereal, buy “pack panties”, and argue with my 16 year old sister like I’m in high school too LOL) but a lot has changed for sure!

Here my top 10 moments when I realized I’m “getting old”:

#Upgrade

Hey guys,

For those of you that have been dropping by over the past few weeks, I’m sure you’ve noticed a big difference in the layout and type of content that I’ve been posting… What’s the reason, you ask? To be able to connect with more folks by sharing more about myself (other than my strong interest in makeup).

Of course, beauty is my main focus – but I really do enjoy other aspects in life that could also inspire, educate, or entertain the folks that follow believe in me (I honestly hate the word “followers”). So with that being said, I have decided to expand my blog beyond the typical beauty blog content. Besides, living a happy, healthy life is a beautiful thing in itself. RIGHT?! =)

I hope you all really enjoy what’s to come, and make sure you drop a comment or “like” on some of my posts so I can get a better feel for what you enjoy as well!

Let’s grow together!

Holiday Party OOTN

Over the weekend I attended my company’s holiday party at Cuvee  lounge in Chicago, IL. I was a little skeptical at first given the low ratings on Yelp, but ended up having a BLAST! The DJ was on point, there was plenty of seating, and the drinks on the special menu were so good!

Anywho, I decided to do a quick post on my Outfit Of The Night (OOTN) and glam because I was so pleased with how it all came together. Continue reading “Holiday Party OOTN”

Great Gift Ideas for Him

HGG_for him

Last week I gave out 5 Beauty Gift Ideas for Her, so this week I decided to return the favor for the guys – sometimes it can be a little difficult shopping for the man (or men) in your life no matter how nonchalant they seem! Plus, we are about 2 weeks away from Christmas and if you are still stumped, hopefully this post can help you.

New Year, [Improved] Me!

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

A lot of people feel like New Year’s Resolutions are pointless “because you can choose to be better any day” (which is true) but some folks need that hard reset to continue revamping themselves against a new timeline – it’s like starting a diet at the beginning of the week rather than a Thursday or Friday… because who does that, right!? Can you tell that I’m one of those people? lol  Continue reading “New Year, [Improved] Me!”

Babydoll Eyes

Hey guys!

I just posted a new tutorial, and it’s inspired by one of the most anticipated movies of 2015…50 Shades of Grey! Now, I know Anastasia wore a very natural “normal girl” look in the movie but with all the remixed beyonce songs I came up with this look based on how the combination of the movie and soundtrack made me feel I wanted to create a look that was so innocent, yet so damn sexy! So here it is… my “sexified” Anastasia Steel makeup tutorial :-p
